FCC Filing in support of Net Neutrality

I don't usually do the whole "Copy & Paste" thing but Net Neutrality is something that I strongly support so I not only copied and pasted, I clicked on the link and participated... I also left a voicemail.

Here's what got it all started:
Here’s a quick and effective way to support net neutrality:
1. On a computer (not your phone!), go to www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express
2. Under "Proceeding," enter 17-108.
3. In comments, say: "I support Title 2 oversight of ISPs, and I support net neutrality."
*Fill in the form carefully; they've deliberately made it less friendly to fill in on your phone.
*Don't be silenced. DO IT NOW!
*Copy & Paste and Pass it on.
Another post stated:
Call 1-202-418-1000 to reach the voicemail of the Chairman of the FCC and say you oppose the repeal of Net Neutrality. It took me a matter of seconds. And share the beejeebers out of this, please!
I offer no comment on the original poster's use of the word "beejeebers."

This is the text of the confirmation e-mail that I received from the FCC:

Brief Comments: I support Title 2 oversight of Internet Service Providers and net neutrality. Internet access has become so integral to participating in all aspects of life that it should be as accessible to the public as clean drinking water, electricity, sewage and other public utilities.
